Company Profile

  • Airport Software Suite

    The BEUMER Group Airport Software Suite combines some of the industry’s most advanced baggage handling system high level controls (BHS HLC) with intuitive, web-based user interfaces to introduce new levels of ease and efficiency to the baggage handling process.

    Ensuring that each bag is safely delivered to the right destination demands high levels of visibility, control and traceability. This includes planning and management as well as statistical analysis of baggage flow and key performance indicators (KPIs).

    It also requires advanced simulation, training and optimisation tools to deliver continual improvement in employee productivity and process efficiency.

  • EBS – Early Baggage Storage

    An early baggage storage system (EBS) allows passenger bags to be checked in hours before flight time with the flexibility of retrieving the bag automatically at any time. An EBS system also manages peak volumes and reduces labour requirements considerably.

    BEUMER Group offers a wide range of solutions including CrisBag® line based EBS, CrisStore® racking solutions and traditional conveyor storage solutions.
